AP PHOTOS: NY Fashion Week turns to seasonless dressing as the weather shifts outside

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Hot and steamy to rainy and windy in a matter of seconds? It happens at New York Fashion Week on the runway — and outside the shows.

The fashion crowd battled through sudden downpours on Saturday. Fortunately for them, there was plenty of leather and unseasonably warm clothes in the spring collections being previewed.

Designers showing on Saturday included Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, Jill Stuart, Rebecca Taylor, Herve Leger, Christian Siriano and Edun — the line by U2 frontman Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson.
