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?

Not a chance.

Gloria – do you know Tori personally? I honestly think Candy is to blame for all the problems because she comes across as a self-centered capital B. But I don’t know her so I can’t say for sure who is to blame. Second – How do you know where someone’s computer was made? Do you know the company that makes that computer the poster even uses. Thought not.

I love Tori, but would never spend that much on clothing for my two babies—babies and toddlers outgrow clothing in the blink of an eye, literally from wash to wash, so to spend $88 on an item that will get worn a few times is a waste.

sounds like gymboree.

If my budget allowed for it at the time, absolutely! There are so many things I like about Tori and I’m sure her children’s clothing line will be just one more thing.

Dean McDermott’s ex wife Mary Jo Eustace, (the one he so cruelly left for Tori) has a TV show called ‘What’s for Dinner’. It’s hilarious, she has an amazing sense of humour, considering everything that has happened to her and she is absolutely gorgeous. I don’t like Dean and Tori. JUST SAYIN!

I will buy them if they are priced right. Remember it is childrens clothes not adult. There is no way I would pay $80 for a pair of pants.

Tori is one of the most underestimated (& under appreciated) women in Hollywood. Wish you luck T. You are the best!
