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?

Just another vague attempt by Tori to stay in the spotlight.

I would buy Tori’s Little Maven clothing for my four yr old daughter if it were cotton-especially organic cotton and the price weren’t so expensive. At this moment in my budget I can not afford any of the price ranges from Little Maven’s clothing line unfortunately. The way she describes the clothes sounds like they will be precious.

Children grow so fast, I buy what is practical for each season and the least expensive, unless, I am certain the clothing will benefit another one of my children.
Children dont need designer wear. In this day and age of economic instability, the last thing we need is another designer wannabee with high price tags on their clothing line.

Hey Mary, actually labor is the US spelling…everyone else spells it labour. Check before you correct others.

Who cares about Tori Spelling? I am sick of seeing her on your site and in your magazine. She has no talent and should just fade into obscurity. On a positive note, she must have the best publicist on the planet.

You can buy a whole wardrobe at Walmart for those prices.

When are people going to realize only one who’s making money is Tori if more and more parents exchanged and recycled clothes they would be amazed at how much money they would save. Don’t get me wrong for certain things it’s great to buy new clothes holiday’s special events but when your toddler is crawling around in the dirt or drooling on them selves what is the point of 25 dollar jeans and shirts?
