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?

Absolutely! My children are grown but I’d buy them for my na mo’opuna (grandchildren). Tori you’re GREAT and you have a beautiful ohana (family)!

Not everyone is having money problems and is broke. There are some of us that don’t want cheap Walmart clothes that fall apart after one or two washes.

Good for Tori, I am sure it will be a hit

I can’t wait for that, I will buy the clothes for my grand kids.
I don’t believe the problem between Tori and her mother should be brought in here. This is a private matter and that’s the way it should be, we all have problems so do go around and judging people.

She’s an anoreixc hag who doesn’t belong making “fashionable” clothing for kids.I wonder, will she starve Stella too?

I hope Tori had her husband sign a pre-nup because she’s the only one making the money in that family.

This message is for “Gloria”.. This article was Supposed to be about Tori’s clothing line.. How disgusting of you to bring Tori’s mother into this.. Tori is an Overcomer… She doesn’t whine about what the wicked witch of the west has done to her.. The Spelling’s had it to Give.. God Blessed them with unearned wealth.. They were so greedy and controlling they could not pass their wealth onto their siblings? The father was Stingy with his only daughter.. Now mama is probably mismanaging what is left.. Mama can hold onto the dough as tight as she wants… If she has really been denied access to the grandchildren (as You have said).. so what! Also, it is none of your business about Tori’s weight, either..

Is anyone out there as sick as I’am with these rich movie stars who never ever get enough money, if they aren’t hocking one thing they are hocking another!

Tori let your mother see her grandchildren, what kind of an example are you setting as a mother when you don’t allow your children the joy of their grandmother? Unless she is a child molester, drug addict or alcoholic GET OVER IT!

I would only buy Little Maven clothes if they were made in the USA and if I had a job(layed off). Tori seems to have a unique and flattering style with her own clothes, so I’m sure her infant, toddler and children line, will be very successful.

Good Luck Tori !!!!!!

Sure, I’ll buy it…at a yard sale after the other people’s kids (whose parent spent the ridiculous retail price) outgrows it.
