The six part drama series ‘Börje- The Journey of a Legend’ premiered on November 19th 2023, becoming the most watched original series on @viaplay in Sweden. It will be coming to @CraveCanada on December 20th.
Costume Designers: Sofie Krunegård and John Dunnet (@whodunnett).
This project honours the life of the legendary hockey player Börje Salming, who passed away from ASL during the filming of this show. It was a Swedish and Canadian co-production. Sofie and Assistant Costume Designer Lisa Pyk Wirstrom came to us from Sweden in the Spring of 2022 to pull for the part of the production happening in Sweden (Summer of 2022), and then the costume team continued to rent more from us as the production moved to Toronto (Fall 2022).
We provided vintage 1970s-80s clothing for both the Swedish and Canadian parts of the production. This clothing was used for both the principal cast and the background actors. See the photos below for the items of ours that we were able to pick out on the show.
