TOLEDO GETS FOLKSY: Isabel Toledo’s crackerjack year is still gaining momentum.

Meanwhile, “Isabel Toledo: Fashion From the Inside Out” has been reeling in the crowds even on Saturdays and Tuesday afternoons, which are not exactly prime time for museum outings in the summer. Many are in search of the showstopper — the First Lady’s lemongrass-hued ensemble that Toledo designed. “It’s like Mecca. Everyone wants to see it,” said the museum’s deputy director Patricia Mears.
