Bist, also known as Based in Istanbul, was established in 2018 in Istanbul by Buket
Kızıltan. The brand is a reflection of Buket's sophisticated and feminine style. The
story behind the brand goes back to the day Buket learnt she was pregnant
with a baby girl. As a mom-to-be, she started working on her brand with the
dream of leaving it to her daughter one day.
After graduating from Beykent University with a degree in Textile and Fashion
Design, and completing the 2 year Fashion Design education in IMA, Buket
gained experience in the fashion industry in different positions. She aims to design
pieces that are traditional enough to be timeless, yet glamorous enough to
highlight women's femininity.
Based in Istanbul, created with love.
