The clutch "locks up the power" between the engine and the transmission to get the power produced in the engine out to the driven wheels. When you press the clutch pedal to the floor you interupt the drive between the engine and the transmission.
If the clutch disc is worn the drive between the engine and transmission isn't locked together. The engine will rev up but the car will not accelerate or appear to slip. If the disc fails totally the car will not drive at all.
