The salutatorian of her graduating class at the Izmir Economy University Fashion Design Department, she had the opportunity to intern with Arzu Kaprol, Yildirim Mayruk and Hey Tekstil during her university years.

Upon graduation from the university, she worked as personal assistant of designers such as Gunseli Turkay and Gul Agis. Basak designed arty patterns for Turkay’s winter collection called “Kirik Porselen”.

She co-created Marble&Co, a white shirt label with her designer partner. But soon afterwards, she left Marble&Co partnership in order to focus more on her own label Bashaques’.

CRUISE 2018

“What would Salvador Dali paint if he was a miniature artist living in Ottoman Palace?’’ was one of the questions that drove Basak Cankes to create patterns inspired by surrealist miniatures. 

While, at the same time the inspiration she gained from Antoni Gaudi’s architectural work of art, Casa Battlo and La Pedrera, drove her to design the other patterns used in this collection. The combination of these two hand-drawn patterns form the main structure of the collection. 

The collection is blended with maxi dresses, flare pants, jumpsuits, coats and motives of eyes that remind Salvador Dali. 

Basak arts up the combination of colors as she always do green, pink, purple, orange, bright and dusty colors all together. Her signature style that includes maximalism, strongness and dimension presents a collection that is applicable for all seasons.
