According to Chinatopix, Miao's bold cuts and exotic designs have been noticed and given positive reviews. His designs would not only look good on men, but has successfully crossed the gender limits, making it a unisex design.
During an interview with Xinhua, Miao revealed that he did extensive research on the materials he needed for the textures he aspired to create for each design. He used rough denim, white poplin, sand-washed silk, feather light linen, and a mixture of cotton and metallic threads for his work at the Milan Male Fashion Week SS17. His cuts were very precise because he utilized every possible technology and technique to create exciting and hip designs.
Miao Ran stated that he would like to make the youth feel more empowered when they wear his designs. That is why the creases and weaves of his designs are funky yet suitable to different styles.

Miao, 29, was born in Italy but moved to Milan Italy to enhance his designing talent. He earned a Masters' degree at the prestigious design academy, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano. While he was still a student in Milan, he was noticed by Marc Ledermann, CEO of Laureate Design Italy.
"Miao Ran was a very visible talent already from the beginning," said Ledermann.
