When You Glish Upon a Star
Tatler Hong Kong|March 2021
Eleanor Lam’s new lifestyle brand, Glish, merges her passions for food, style and Los Angeles
Tara Sobti

Eleanor Lam has something new and exciting up her sleeve. After making a name for herself as a digital influencer, the daughter of media tycoon Peter Lam and actress Lynn Hsieh is now leveraging her social-media sway and business savvy to turn her passions for fashion and food into Glish, a new lifestyle brand that will launch with a pop-up pastry shop this year. She tells Tatler about the inspiration behind the brand and her hopes for the future.

What does Glish mean?

Glish is a slang word to describe something unconventionally cool. It can be used to describe a person, a type of food or even an action that defies the usual standards. It’s a way of living in which diversity and authenticity are fully embraced. A person living the Glish way lives according to their own standards and does not conform to convention.
