Indonesian designer Vivi Zubedi made her New York solo runway show debut Sunday, wowing the crowd with her abaya-only collection as she hopes to capitalize on the growing market for modest, Muslim fashions.Zubedi's signature product is the abaya – the loose, flowing head-to-toe black garment obligatory in Saudi Arabia and adopted by some of the most strictly observant Muslim women elsewhere.Since Zubedi established her eponymous label in 2011, modest fashion – designed specifically for the affluent, modern, religiously observant Muslim woman – is gaining traction as designers eye the consumer potential in conservative communities all over the world.U.S. fashion houses DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger and Oscar de la Renta, as well as Spanish giants Zara and Mango, have all also produced a Ramadan line.U.S. retail giant Macy's will start selling a modest clothing range Thursday that includes dresses, tops and hijabs, created by a woman who struggled to find clothes after she converted to Islam.
