The Barrandov Costume Department (Fundus), an integral part of the Barrandov Studio, is one of the largest costume rental services in Europe. Its unique collection of more than 350,000 costumes and accessories is conveniently organized by category, historical period and genre, ranging from the ancient world to the present day, and from fairy tales to science fiction.
The Barrandov Costume Department provides costumes for both Czech and international productions. In the past, we have helped “dress” the famous film
by Miloš Forman Amadeus, which went on to win an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Barrandov Studio has contributed costumes to major international productions such as Roman Polanski’s Oliver Twist, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Edith Piaf biopic La vie en Rose,
as well as loaning a set of Renaissance period costumes for the Irish historical series The Tudors. The Barrandov costume department workshops manufactured costumes for the Danish historical drama A Royal Affair, the Swedish film Simon and the Oaks, the German biographical drama Hannah Arendt or the Czech Television period series První republika (The First Republic).
As an extra service, we offer assistance in selecting costumes for clients who do not have the option to send a whole team to Prague and only bring the principal costume designer. As a matter of priority, the service is offered to our regular clients and its availability depends on the schedule and capacity of our specialized staff – wardrobe masters and assistants who provide the service. If our in-house staff is not available at the moment, we can recommend external wardrobe assistants. This service is charged.
Also, we are able to convey your costume and props selection requests “remotely” - online via e-mail,telephone and video conferencing, with no need to pay your visit to our warehouses or even to the Czech Republic.
For international orders, we provide world-wide costume and props transport services. We cooperate with renowned transportation companies and will be happy to meet your individual specific requirements. For countries outside the EU, we will provide the ATA Carnet documents required for customs.
Our partner Dry Cleaners provide maximum care to our costumes. They use traditional cleaning technologies such as washing, ironing, dry cleaning, and steaming.
In order to provide the highest possible comfort to our clients when processing orders, our newly built facilities of "open space" working spaces equipped with lighting, electrical sockets and Wi-Fi internet connection are available always during the Costume and Props Department´s opening hours.
We offer spaces for rent - for a costume setting or for the crew – or for costume rehearsals with a smaller crew and the director, on the 3rd floor. Our photo studio is also available for your usage.
