Looks like there’s another star designer on the rise. Tori Spelling has inked a deal for a children’s apparel line, Little Maven by Tori Spelling, which will hit stores this fall. The actress and mom-of-two dished to about her chic and casual Hollywood-inspired line. “I’ve always loved fashion,” she says. “It’s one of my big passions in life. When I had kids I knew I wanted to use my flair for style to make stylish yet comfortable clothing for my children. Liam and Stella inspired me to make stylish yet accessible clothing for infants, toddlers, and children.” But style wasn’t the only factor actress considered. “The comfort [and] functionality factor really influences the styles I include in my collection. I pay close attention to what styles and materials Liam and Stella feel most comfortable in, and then I add the stylish element. Plus I love to dress my kids in strong fun pop colors, and that really inspired me to keep the line bold in palette.” So which looks are her kids loving right now? “Liam loves bold bright colors and gravitates to them. Of course, he wants to wear something with a monkey on it, which inspired the monkey hang tag on all the boys clothing. He also loves jeans. So I created the “Liam” jean just for him. It’s the perfect cut, stylish, and comfortable. And I love the LM stitched on back pockets, which stands for Little Maven, but I tell him it’s LM for Liam McDermott!” Inspired by her new baby girl, Tori knew she wanted to take her girls’ designs in a direction that was cute — but not too girly. “I wanted to find the happy medium between dressing Stella too baby-girl-frilly and too sophisticated in style. It’s adorable toddler mixed with Hollywood glam starlet!” Items will retail between $24-$88 in department and specialty stores across the country. Tell us: Will you buy Tori’s clothes for the kids in your life?

I’d buy Tori’s clothes if I had kids, which I don’t, etc.

I would buy anything Tori wanted to sell me! I just love her to pieces. She is so down to earth even from her crazy upbringing. When I have kids you best believe that they will be styling “little Maven”.

Would not buy the clothing… kids out grow clothing so fast it would not be worth it… Who wantes to really spend $25+ on something their child will not get much use out of…

Violet on

Not if the clothes are made in China, or in a country where child labour or sweatshops could be used in the factory production of the clothing.

Tori needs to straighten out her relationship issues with her mother first before pouring all her extra energy into a clothing line. What a shame her mother cant see the grandkids..If Candy Spelling is abusive to the grandkids, then I can see Tori’s point. Dont mix the kids up in the adult problems. Its not fair to them. Tori also needs to gain some weight. She is looking rail thin. Good Luck Tori with your line of clothes, but you need to focus on her personal life.

Hey Violet- You are typing on a computer whose parts were probably made in China with kids hands in a factory.

Too expensive for clothes they will outgrow in weeks…. Why can’t people make decent clothing at a good price point… We would buy twice as many and the sales would even out.,..
