Along with this, there will be exhibition displays in tandem with nature themes. There will be three zones—Land, Sea, and Sky. The Institute will display some exclusive pieces that were never known to mankind during the exhibition. There will also be some contemporary archive pieces from designers like Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, and others on display.
