Today we had a free morning! Everyone got to sleep in a bit and then some of us went out to the café around the corner for a delicious breakfast and some wonderful smoothies. Around 10 am we headed out to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts to see the Thierry Mugler couture exhibit, which was so cool! Every room was tailored to the pieces that were in it, which really added to the experience. The very first room was focused on the costumes Mugler had designed for a production of Macbeth in Paris. It was very dark, and in the back of the room was a hologram scene of Lady Macbeth going mad, with sound effects of crows screeching, and ominous music. The room after that was focused on the costumes Mugler had designed for celebrities, such as Lady Gaga, Madonna and Beyoncé. My favorite room was a large hall where the walls were screens showing underwater scenes that morphed into rainforest halfway down. There were sound effects to accompany the scenes, and it felt like you had just walked into a different universe. The costumes in the room were inspired by marine life and animals in the rainforest and were absolutely incredible. I could have spent hours in the exhibit, but we had to head over to Santropol Roulant, an organization that provides a meals on wheels service to the community. We were given a tour of the building and got to see the roof gardens and some cool murals. After the tour we went to their farmers market and got some fresh organic produce for dinner. The rest of the evening was spent cooking dinner, eating and relaxing.
