Frida Giannini: I don't do Twitter

Frida Giannini is too busy to open a Twitter account.

The creative director of Gucci has worked hard to create a good work/life balance over recent years. When she started out with the Italian fashion house she became consumed by her job, something she's determined not to let happen again. It means she has no time for social networking sites as she rarely logs onto her computer when at home.

"Gucci is on Twitter, but no, not me. You need time to do things like that. I start work early, I finish late in the evening and then I want to talk to my friends," she said. "I don't want to spend the night on a computer."

The designer's decision not to work when at home isn't just about her stress levels. She fears people are becoming too far removed from their communities and their loved ones.

"Sometimes I worry people are losing the pleasure of just being together," she told the British edition of InStyle magazine. "I prefer to have a conversation and look into someone's eyes."
