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 have to see and touch the clothing first. I don’t have children, but enjoy keeping my little niece and nephew in fashionable clothing. For a child, I don’t care if they appear stylish if they have fabrics that don’t feel luxurious. Kids need soft comfy clothes that still look good.

Well Tori,
I am sure your baby clothes are cute but to be honest they are WAY OVER PRICED! You want to sell a bunch….in this day and time they don’t need to be at $24 to $88. Working mom’s and dads can’t afford this. Be smart and get the price down much more reasonable. Like $10 to $15 per piece. If not even less. People are hurting money wise. You may not be but the majority of us are. Not to be mean…….but there is VERY FEW OF US WHO LIVE IN BEVERLY HILLS CA. Think this over because I really think you won’t make it with your projections. But I do think you have a lot of talent. Be smart…don’t ask for so much. The general public is who you want to serve. I do hope you do well. But I won’t buy at your children’s clothes until I deem them reasonable.

I mostly buy my children’s clothing at Wal-Mart…do you think I would pay 88.00 for one item of clothing? I think I might have for my daughters prom dress…

Pay attention too your mother she is the only one you’ll ever have.You have no councious to stop your mother from your children. You have no heart only about earning money.

I could see my son wearing her line, I love everything about this girl! I would pay close attention to where they are made! will not pay top dollars for clothing made in china.

i would not buy a damn thing these celebrities are selling. why would i want to make them richer and i’m struggling to pay my bills. get real people.

I think it’s a great idea but not for the price tag that comes with it, so my answer would be no. Target is just fine for my kiddos until they are older and more concerned about what they are wearing.

Val on

Umm .. VOMIT!

I’d only buy them if they were appealing in style and cheap – my decision would have nothing to do with Tori Spelling (since I don’t really care for her one way or the other).
