NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Designers took fashion travelling through time in New York on Saturday, displaying looks evoking the past and future to crowds undeterred by deep snow that covered the city.

Ruffian, Lacoste and Porsche Design were three of the lines showing their fall and winter 2013 collections at New York Fashion Week, which brings more than 200,000 models, design experts and journalists to the city for the semi-annual extravaganza.

Attendance at Fashion Week, where many in the audience don stylish and often outlandish looks for the occasion, appeared little touched by the storm, which left a foot (30cm) of snow overnight.

"I don't see it affecting it, except the outfits have gotten more interesting," said Adam Paige, a spokesman for Mercedes-Benz, which sponsors Fashion Week shows staged at New York's Lincoln Center.
