XXV, the brainchild of Lutfil Hadi, came about when he was looking for ways to engage and celebrate TP’s 25th anniversary. Then president of his diploma’s interest group, the Diploma in Business Intelligence & Analytics alumnus and the executive committee decided to sell t-shirts. A resounding success among students, it prompted the brand to further expand its range.

Today, XXV has expanded its business, working with other polytechnics and startups at TP. Their most recent project is their foray into designer-centric streetwear, OffCampus.
