Owe Sandström

Owe Sandström is a world famous designer who created the stage costumes for many swedish artists in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Above all he is famous for the extraordinary outfits he created for ABBA. Owe designed all of ABBA's tour costumes and is probably the only pop designer to have worked with such a big act from beginning to end.

Besides being a designer, Owe Sandström is a zoologist, who's also studied botany, marine biology and many more subjects. He is a well-known TV-personality in Sweden, known for teaching the televiewers about animals by bringing the latter into the studio. His passion for animals served as an inspiration for many of ABBA's costumes — perhaps the most famous example being Anni-Frid's and Agnetha's cat dresses.
