Sabo Skirt founder Thessy finds her forever home in Brisbane
BRISBANE power couple Thessy and George Batsinilas have found their forever home after years of house hunting.
The co-founder of fashion label to the stars, Sabo Skirt, took to social media to announce she and her husband were the winning bidders at auction for a home in Holland Park West, which they plan to knock down and build a brand new house on.
And in a sweet twist, the property is right next door to the home of Thessy’s best friend, Sabo Skirt co-owner and sister-in-law, Yiota Kouzoukas.

Batsinilas, also known as Thessy K, told her 156,000 Instagram followers that the couple had been hunting for a house for the past two years.
“We have lost so many auctions and had never been the highest offer and we would always be so disappointed,” she said.
“Today we WON!! Our forever block that we can build a house of (sic) full of love and create memories.”
Records show they bought the property for $1.14 million.
The 600 sqm block is one of Holland Park West’s most prestigious streets, with the back deck on the existing home offering spectacular city views.
George Batsinilas is the co-owner of the gym and online fitness business, FitazFk.
The pair recently tied the knot in a rustic outdoor ceremony on the Greek island of Kythira.
Thessy walked down an aisle set out in the middle of a field behind her 11-month-old daughter Zani and in front of 193 guests.
