Once upon a time, in a small town, there was a young lady named Alex who loved to travel. She loved exploring new places and soaking up the local traditions and culture. On one of her trips to the Middle East, she fell in love with the beautiful architecture and intricate art that surrounded her.
One day, as she was walking around the markets of Marrakesh, she stumbled upon a pottery shop that caught her eye. The shop was filled with beautiful vases, plates, and cups, each displaying a unique style of painting. Alex asked the shopkeeper what style of pottery it was, and the shopkeeper replied, “It’s ALA.”
Alex was puzzled and had never heard of ALA before. The shopkeeper explained that ALA was a unique traditional style of painting and that it stood for ‘in the style of’. Alex was fascinated by this and decided to buy a beautiful ALA vase as a souvenir of her visit to Morocco.
From that day on, Alex made it her mission to learn about different art and architectural styles on her travels, and she always sought out beautiful pieces ‘in the style of’ wherever she went. And that’s how the crossword clue ‘In the style of’ became associated with the answer ‘ALA’, thanks to Alex’s love of discovering new styles and cultures on her travels.
