If there was an accolade for the most entertaining tweeter it would surely be awarded to Donna Ida Thornton, owner of denim indie Donna Ida. She amuses her 4,400-plus followers not only with the latest denim news but also with tales of her workaholic lifestyle – which sees her moving from a buying appointment to a trade show or avoiding a parking ticket.
In 2011, the indie introduced initiatives such as a loyalty card and an online denim clinic. Thornton has also freshened up the brand mix with exclusive new labels including Roseanna and Bleulab.
