Parchment chic

The Jewish Museum has a slideshow from the their “Off the Wall: Artists at Work,” a two-week slate of events featuring more than a dozen young artists of various sorts. Jennifer Bleyer did a profile for Nextbook about one of the participants, a Chabadnik-turned-fashion designer named Levi Okunov, who put on a runway show at the museum using scraps of parchment, the dried calfskin that mezuzahs, ketubahs and other holy texts are written on.
