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 PEOPLE.com 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?

No. Plain and simple. I agree with another poster…they grow out of them so freaking fast it is like flushing money down the drain…now if they were to hit consignment stores…then yes…but def. not new. $24 for what? A onsie? Come on?

kerrie on

Yes, I will definitely check them out!

The price tag is a little high for me. Kids outgrow their clothes so fast that I try to spend as little money as possible on them. And $88 for kids clothes? Please. There are lots of cute things at stores like Target and Old Navy that go from $5-$10, so why would I spend upwards of $25 for something they’ll only wear a few times?

I would buy them.I love Tori and everything about her.

I WOULD DEFINATELY PURCHASE ANYTHING TORI SPELLING DESIGNED! MY DAUGHTER STARTED AN UPSCALE CHILDRENS USED CLOTHING STORE IN MUSKEGON MICHIGAN BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMY. SHE PURCHASES GENTLY USED CLOTHING AND AS WE ALL KNOW THOSE WITH CHILDREN, THEY GROW FAST! CHECK OUT HER WEBSITE! WEECYCLEMAMMA.COM

She also sells reuseable cloth diapers!

Chick is too skinny. No matter HOW boney, she still A) Looks like a horseface B) In need of bucks apparently and C) Who did that boob job: so lopsided and too fat!

For some reason Tori didn’t tell me about this line, hmmmm. Guess she only breaks the big news to the important people?? Read my interview with her here: http://www.iheartheels.com/2009/03/exclusive-interview-tori-spelling.html

Gloria, it’s so pathetic of you to comment on what Tori needs to do with her life. YOU, as well as the world have NO IDEA what exactly went on between her and her mother so butt the EFF OUT. If you’re going to worrying about what other people are doing with their lives then I suggest you learn how to answer a question properly of what is asked. The question was asking if you would buy her clothes. YES OR NO? Not a, “Gloria, what do you think Tori should do with her life??” ANYWAY, I love Tori and would definitely buy her clothes. I think she’s so talented and glad she’s sharing it with all of us. Goodbye :D

Her 15 minutes of fame ended long ago. Give it up and she should call her mother. Candy seemed very authentic on the news last week.

Traci on

I won’t be buying an $88 item…but I suppose if the clothes were of great quality I would spend $28…I spend that much on Gap items…but usually I look for bargains

Also…what exactly does her personal life have to do with a new cloths line? I never thought much of the designers personal life when I purchased their clothes.
