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,I will not!All of these celebs have all this money and they charge $24 to $88 for some infant and childrens clothing?Come on lets down the price a little bit an dmake them more affordable for everyones kids.The economy is in the middle of a huge crisis right now and we are struggling to make ends meet.So why not make them walmart worthy and sale them at a reasonable price.Maybe it is only catered to peopel with money.Shame on you Tori.Your never gonna make a living off saleing over priced stuff like that.Bring it down and donate soe of it to a childrens foundation for less fortunate kids.

I really hope that Tori Spelling’s children don’t end up turning on her the way she has on her own mother. Now that she is a parent, it’s time to grow up, be the bigger person, and put petty grivences behind. Her children deserve to know and love both of their grandmothers. Be careful what you say and do around your children Tori or they may grow up as unforgiving as you.

Well, first off, my children are older so I have no reason right now to buy these clothes but, I still can’t get over what Dean and Tory did to their ex-spouses! REALLY LOW!!!!!! So, I would most likely not buy anything of hers.

I think Tori Spelling is a amazing person and a great mom and really down to earth good luck on your new line im sure it will be great!!!!

I hope her clothing line does well. I also hope that she and her family can take their issues out of the public eye and resolve them. Aaron Spelling must be rolling in his grave as he watches how his wife is treating Tori…..let’s face it – Tori was the light of his life and I think that bothers her more than anything. Since mom now holds the purse-strings, it’s her only way to get the vengence she’s likely felt for many years. Sad……very sad. I hope the McDermott’s shine!!
