After Batsheva Hay quit her job as a lawyer seven years ago, her fashion shifted. “All I was wearing was vintage clothing, and I would go into department stores and I just couldn’t find anything new that I liked that was as much fun to me as the vintage clothing,” she says. So she started making her own vintage-inspired clothes, and then in 2016 she started a dress company, Batsheva (@batshevadress), where she takes elements from other eras — from Victorian to pioneer to hippie — and gives them a modern twist.⁣ ⁣ To find out more about Batsheva and her dresses, head over to @shop – THE account where you can discover and shop from up-and-coming designers. ❤️🌟⁣ ⁣ Photo by @alexeihay

This isn’t a camera trick. “My favorite part of this video is that people would never know how many takes I tried,” says illusionist Henry Harrius (@henryharrius), who specializes in close-up and interactive magic. “We filmed this outdoors, so the wind made it much harder. I also wanted to try to catch the cards without looking. That's why it took so many takes to make it work.”⁣ ⁣ Do you believe in magic? ✨ #ThisWeekOnInstagram we are showcasing the art of illusion.

Anton Thallner (@antonthallner) doesn’t mind bending the rules. “I love using animation, design and visual effects techniques to bend reality, tell stories and share my perspective of the world,” says the motion designer and visual effects director. “Usually it’s a simple ‘what if’ that pops into my head and I begin to obsess over it.”⁣ ⁣ Do you believe in magic? ✨ #ThisWeekOnInstagram we are showcasing the art of illusion.

#HelloFrom Cappadocia, Turkey, a surreal landscape of rock formations — sometimes called fairy chimneys — that have been sculpted by volcanoes, wind, rain and ice over many millions of years. “Since I had already seen hundreds of photos of hot air balloons in Cappadocia before, my eyes automatically searched for something different,” says photographer and content creator Helin Bereket (@helinbereket), who took this photo from a hot air balloon. “Then, there it was: vintage cars in an almost otherworldly landscape. It looked like a scene from a movie.” Photo by @helinbereket

Victoria Garrick (@victoriagarrick) is no stranger to finding balance in the face of pressure. As a public speaker, content creator and former student athlete, she speaks openly about the real pressures of social comparison. “The pressure to be perfect stems from a societal belief that perfection is the only way to be good enough,” says Victoria. “I tried to attain these unrealistic standards of beauty, get straight As in school, become a star athlete and constantly seem happy. I was so consumed with portraying a perfect image and pretty Instagram aesthetic that I lost sight of what it meant to be me,” she says. “When I finally realized I was living for likes and validation from others online, I wanted to find a way to get back to being real and authentic.”⁣ ⁣ Instagram partnered with the Jed Foundation (@jedfoundation) to create a toolkit addressing the Pressure to be Perfect, recognizing that what you see posted by others is just one part of their story.
