Natalie Glaze and Zanna van Dijk met because of Instagram. Today, they’re the #founders of Stay Wild Swim (@staywildswim), a sustainable swimwear brand designed and stitched in London. 💕 The pair’s deep connection to sustainability and the ocean inspired them to start the company together. But neither had a formal background in fashion. “For us, there was so much bliss in the naiveté of just beginning our business,” explains Zanna. “We started out not really knowing what we were getting ourselves into and gave it a go — and the next thing you know, we’re in up to our necks.” 🌊✨ In our limited series #founders, we’re sharing the stories of amazing small business owners from all over the world. A new episode will be available every Saturday until Christmas. To see even more #founders stories, check out @instagramforbusiness

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.

Artist Mischelle Moy’s (@lilmisch) digital compositions = portals to another dimension. “I’ve always been drawn to the odd and otherworldly, whether archaeological findings or discoveries of life on other planets,” she says. “These ‘plant holders’ are very special to me, because they combine both a paradisal sunset vibe with an extraterrestrial sense of existence that is illustrated (mostly separately) throughout my work.” #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Photo illustration by @lilmisch

“I decided that being bald isn’t going to hold me back,” says 16-year-old Miah Griffith (@miahcgriffith), who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 10, then alopecia a year later. “It really affected my life the first few years of getting used to it. I never really knew if people were friends with me for me, or out of sympathy,” she says. “Now, I’m confident in my own skin, and I feel like I rock being bald. I enjoy my baldness and the stares from other people don’t affect me much. I know that I’m beautiful the way I am, and no one can say otherwise.”⁣ ⁣ Photo by @miahcgriffith

“I’m the kind of person that gets really obsessed about things and puts all my eggs in one basket,” explains Leo Wang, one of the #founders of Buffy (@buffy), an earth-friendly home goods brand based in NYC. “And if you’re like me, then that’s what being a founder is like. Originally from Xi'an, China, Leo immigrated to the United States with his parents who later built a thriving weaving and fabric brand. He didn’t always expect to, but ultimately Leo built a modern brand rooted in his family tradition. “It’s important to be really observant, to learn to listen to the people around you but ultimately, trust yourself,” he says.

“I refer to my work as otherworldly because it references earthly landscapes, but is rearranged and combined in a way that feels fantastical,” says self-taught artist Laura Hendricks (@hav_house), who creates both handmade and digital collages. “The vastness of mountains and sky offers the perspective that the universe is much larger than ourselves. We tend to complicate our lives with worries and details that don’t matter in the end.
