FIRST A BOOK THEN THE BUS TOUR NOW…THE MOVEMENT!

Tony Hsieh, delivering happiness book, delivering happiness, Zappos Exclusive, Zappos exclusive brand, Delivering Happiness clothing, new brand spotlight, Zappos clothing, Zappos CEO Tony HsiehDelivering Happiness started as a best-selling book, became a bus tour and turned into something bigger than ever imagined . . . a global movement.

We've heard from people representing 105 countries, crossing the lines of age, origin and background, telling us they're ready to make a difference in the world . . . through happiness.

In some ways it's not surprising since the truth is we all want to be happy. But the research shows we're not good at predicting what gives us lasting joy.

That's where Delivering Happiness comes in. Backed by science, academics and positive psychology, we're here to inspire and share ways to make happiness last.

Now you can help us spread the word and support the movement through our new DH Collection. With happiness as our higher purpose, we've put together a dream team to fashion the most comfy, stylish line of apparel—made in California and created to inspire (and be inspired by) happiness.

To celebrate our new line, 100% of the profits from all the DH Collection sales this year will go toward fueling the movement.

That means every purchase enables DH to put on more free classes that anyone in the world can take, more free events to inspire people to pursue their passions, and more talks to nonprofits, schools and companies about ways that everyone—no matter where they are in life—can start delivering happiness now.

With every purchase you not only help pay happiness forward—you feel good, knowing you're doing good. Together, we can make our communities, companies and cities happier places.

B44: Our biggest influences are our customers!

 What fashion trend are you most looking forward to for Spring 2012?

B44: Color blocking! Bold solid color pieces like the Bailey44 Ponte Scalloped Clover dress from our Spring 2012 collection featured in black and white and sky blue and white were among our favorites. Another fashion favorite was our lurex stripes mixed with natural shades of taupe and ash making the silhouette wearable day to night.

Tell us a little bit about who the Bailey 44 woman is.

B44: Bailey44 encompasses numerous lifestyles. Bailey Core fits everyone's needs. Bailey dresses meet the needs of working woman by day and is also perfect for evening. Of course, Bailey44 provides our girl with sexy yet wearable tops and dresses with numerous choices and luscious fabrics.

In your opinion, what is a women's best fashion accessory?

B44: A woman's best fashion accessory is her confidence.

If there was an ultimate muse for Bailey 44, which celebrity would it be and why? :
