Joan Ros

My name is Joan Ros, I am a fashion and costume designer, a PhD student and professor at BAU, College of Arts and Design of Barcelona. I hold a degree in Fashion Design from BAU and an MA in Men’s Fashion from Central Saint Martins, London.

I research about fashion semantics, class politics and design processes.

My thesis centers on fashion’s ability to create and destroy unitary class iconography. I study power relations, symbolic capital and perfomativity in the design process.
