The show which was held last evening, Saturday 1st October, 2011, at Carnival Village, saw the four local beauties competing in five segments, Interview, Traditional Swimwear, Creative Swimwear, My Island Promotional Speech and Evening Wear.
The hibiscuses sported swimwear made from materials such as coconut palms and sand in the creative swimwear segment. However, in the evening wear category each delegate was provided with a white satin cloth by the organizing committee and was asked to make a dress in the design of their choice.
