NEW YORK — “When a lady turns a corner, you must say, ‘Oh my God!”‘ says William Ivey Long. “These are oh-my-God looks.” The famed costume designer is referring to the opening group from the new ready-to-wear collection he will unveil next Wednesday in his Chelsea town house, in a show complete with chorus girls, an original song and a script by Wendy Wasserstein. Here, with a hint of Charles James, the corseted gown in duchess satin over jeweled lace and tulle. For more on Long and the upcoming shows, see WWD The Collections, pages 7-22.
