Take a glimse of the #InstaWorthy life of the Sabo Skirt founders.

You’ll know Thessy Kouzoukas and Yiota Kouzoukas as the mastermind fashionsita’s behind Australian label, Sabo Skirt. In just a short time of their operation already Sabo Skirt has reached national and international success, with their latest collections showing at New York Fashion Week with the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid wearing their designs.

Here the pair exclusively shares what a typical day of their glam, life is like!

You both always look so effortlessly chic! What’s the secret to putting together lust worthy OOTD’s? Do you plan your outfits or decide on the day?

Thessy: Oh thank-you! We love pieces that are effortless and comfortable, we’re all about the not too “put together” look. We believe it’s important to dress and style our looks to suit our body shape while knowing we can tackle any activity we’re faced with throughout the day. I think when you feel confident in what you are wearing, you feel good about yourself and put out an effortless vibe. My key advice would be not to overthink it and just go with comfort.

As for myself personally, I must say I’m not always a master of planning my outfits! Sometimes I will wake up and want to have a casual day in my activewear, other days I want to get dressed up; it really depends on what I’m feeling.

Both of your Instagram’s are serious life goals! We understand that on social media there can be pressures to sometimes filter our lives. Do you ever find it difficult to maintain appearances while still remaining authentic?

Yiota: Thessy and I find social media as a way to share our love for fashion, and our social media channels reflect this. The content we upload to both our Instagram feeds and Instagram stories are accurate to our everyday lives. You will see us laughing, dancing and having fun with friends, and then you will see us posting photos of our daily outfits, taking selfies and the latest happenings at Sabo. Authenticity is really important to us! We are open people and are the same person on-or-off screen. We will always be like that.
