Nassau, Bahamas - Islands of the World Fashion Week 2010 had a new feature this year, that being The Search for the Next Oscar.  This was described by IWFW as "an award that will recognize and honour the island-based designer whose collection reflects a cohesive medium between “ready-to-wear” and “haute couture” designs. Like fellow island designer, Oscar de la Renta, their collection must appeal to a woman of exquisite taste. Attention will be given to the designer’s expression of style, creativity, selection of fabric and color, and quality of execution of the designs. The deciding piece will be the red carpet design for that exclusive engagement."
