Aschlonian Clothing and Dress

Traditional Dress
In Aschlon, during the 17th century, a sophisticated dress style emerged. Inspired by the fashion of the various cultured cities on mainland-Albion, female dress took on a more refine style using a variety of sumptuous, jewel-coloured satin fabrics. Whilst certainly traditional, the dress is in no way practical for everyday use of the time when it was developed, rarely including a peasant apron and instead they sport white parasols, fans, jewels and other stylish accessories. Often a delicate lace bodice and shawl complete the picture, with usually the most distinctive feature is, the hair, is done in a complex double chignon wrapped around a tiny headdress of ribbon or lace.

Usually men wear a simple shirt and either a waist or tail coat, complemented with smart, dark, trousers. Male fashion developed along a similar vein to that of the female's, emerging from Aschlonian admiration for the high up centres of culture they witnessed. This has lead to male and female traditional dress in Aschlon to favour style over practicality.

Modern Fashion
Fashion varies from generation to generation. Traditional dress is often worn by the older generations, whilst the younger tend to wear more comfortable clothes in their day to day lives. Schools don't often have a uniform policy.

Work clothes mainly includes suits and trousers for men and suits and knee skirts for women. Day to day wear varies depending on taste, however generally more rural areas will wear more traditional clothing, whilst most urban areas wear more comfortable clothing.

Jewellery
Jewellery in Aschlon is typically rather grand. Jewels are typically prominent in high-end jewellery, rubies being the preferred type. Crab claw necklaces, and bracelets are the most common jewellery overall, with them being made out of gold or other gold-style metals. They're often seen as a lucky charm, interacting often with local folklore and myth. Rings are usually made of white gold or palladium, recently overtaking the classic rose gold that had dominated the jewellery scene in Aschlon in the early 1980s.

Aschlonian Gastronomy

Aschlonian Cuisine
In Aschlon, Cuisine is split between High and Low Aschlonian Cuisine. High Aschlonian Cuisine originates from the cultural and aristocratic meals of Mainland-Albion, much in the same way traditional dress did. It is typically light, but rich. Common flavours include oranges and lemons, which are often found in desserts, whilst spices such as cinnamon and chervil spice the main meals. It is usually eaten in highend restaurants and special occasions.
On the other hand, Low Cuisine is much more filling, utilising heavy meats like beefs and porks. Stewed vegetables are often common, and garlic is often used. The other most popular spices include rosemary and thyme. It is usually eaten in day-to-day life.

Cheeses and steamed crabs are considered a delicacy and a staple of Aschlonian cooking, commonly used in both High and Low cooking. In certain annual festivals, crab meat is boiled over a couple of weeks, breaking it down to produce a fine, strong tasting, broth.
