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?

Everything, yes, everything is made in China. A sweatshop job is better than hoping to catch a fly for lunch. Tori is a living doll. Hope this line works out terrific for her. There are people who like to buy nice things for their kids even if they do outgrow them. I outgrow or wear out my clothes too but I don’t walk around naked over it and certainly don’t buy strictly Target or Walmart because of it. Pamper thyself then thy child on occasion, saith the Lord. You only get one first impression, so dress for success.

If I were Candy Spelling, I’d buy some of the clothes and send them to Tori’s kids as gifts. Perhaps then, Candy and the grandkids can visit.

No, I would not! I like Tori, but I do not like the way she dresses her kids. I have a 20 month old and I dress him in beautiful childrens clothes, both affordable and expensive! You do not have to be a celebrity to dress your kids well and even if its from Tori Spelling M.

Man, Tory is one ugly chick … as she gets older she looks even more like her mother. Saw some pic’s lately & she is a skeleton & that doesn’t do her any justice. Her face reminds me of Mr. Ed …. a horse is a horse of course of course. Sorry Tory – genetics have not been kind to you. Good thing you’ve got all of Daddy’s money to make sure you make it in this world, ’cause if you had to do it on your own merit ……

Her prices are no more expensive than the Gap. Now granted, I do try to find bargains when I shop at the Gap, but every now and again I do splurge for my Hannah Banana. She’s wonderful and she deserves it. So if I see something made by Tori that I can’t resist, and must have, than I will get it. I think Tori has a good sense of style. I also agree that Tori and her talent are underestimated. Furthermore, these personal attacks are being made by ignorant fools, who need to get lives and find something better to do with their time other than beat up on the character of someone who is simply trying to do a job. I am sure that they all have things for which their moral compasses sent them in the wrong direction, so to all of you, get up off your soap boxes. And to the those making purely superficial insults, you clearly have no moral compass to stear you in any direction at all. All I can say to you is go to church and try to find God. Go Tori!!

Only people that will be getting these clothes are people that can afford to be tossing money away like used up old paper. Of course people are going to be getting the clothes for their children -they can afford to spend 100 bucks on an outfit for an infant!

I would look at her line of clothing, definately. As much as I prefer Walmart prices, I also need quality clothing for my three boys that will last hopefully long enough to hand down and make the most of my budget. And I have to admit, Tori has a lot of style and hopefully will create some great stylish clothes for boys! There are so many cute things already in the market for girls, the boys need more to choose from.

I thought the question was about buying the clothing line……Why do ppl need to discuse her mother, her weight, her life. Just answer the question and leave it at that.

I would buy her clothing line if it was to my likeing but not just because it was designed by Tori.
Thanks
