Joy and Hayley hard at work in our Chinese factory.

Hayley, what do you do?
I manage operations, which means I mostly focus on production and communication with our team in China. My part of the process involves working alongside Beks and our factories to turn Beks’ sketches into the actual shoes that you buy!

How long have you been with Chaos & Harmony? 
I just celebrated my fifth anniversary here earlier this year.

What is your favourite shoe or go-to style?
I love Calibrate, Amelia Black and Lauryn.

What is your fondest C&H memory?  
I love travelling. I love getting to know the lives and culture of the people we work with in China.

What achievement are you most proud of?  
Being able to build a good relationship with the staff in our factories, so we can work closely with them to develop unique designs.
