VERNON, Calif. — Serge Azria, owner and creative director of the contemporary label Joie, rolls a red-colored rock in his hands as a reminder of what he wants for his company: passion, strength and excitement.
That's the mantra as six-year-old Joie, which is based here, launches retail stores in the U.S. and Japan and expands into accessories, shoes and a girls' clothing line called Petite Joie.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
