SARASOTA-  A Sarasota–based and world–renowned fashion designer takes a step away from a busy career to write a book about the simple things in life.

Sigrid Olsen, wrote “My Life, Redesigned”, a novel sharing her story of stepping into the fashion world and choosing to live the life she wanted.

The author talks about enduring breast cancer, closing a business, and losing her husband.

“Sometimes the worst things that happen force you to see the beauty in something you’ve missed all along,” Olsen said, “So, you end up with a difficult situation, but there’s always a lesson to be learned, there’s always a gift hidden in there somewhere.”

Wednesday night, Olsen hosted a book signing at Art Ovation Hotel. She said she’s amazed with the out-pour of support the book has received.
