    Evaluation of Students’ Research Activities in the Design Study Programmes at Rezekne Higher Education Institution
    Nowadays education and research is promoting development of design industry. In order to find unique Latvian design identity the quality of design is increasing. New possibilities and requirements for design education and research are raised by social and ecological issues. In order to promote sustainable design education research strategy is needed, therefore it is essential to pay attention to research strategy in education process. The aim of the article is educational research as significant part of research competence theoretical and empirical evaluation and its activation in design courses' education process in Rezekne Higher Education Institution. The analysis of the learning research process was carried out in accordance with the principles of action research, theoretical researches in the context of the issue were carried out and the results were obtained: opinions of 80 full time students in the age group 19-25 years, about the role of learning research process of designers' education. The research has practical meaning, because it recommends suggestions for perfection of study process in connection to investigation and analysis of educational research promoting/delaying activities, and necessity to promote students' research competence for professional project work in the future.

    The advent of laser technology in textiles industry has established a new innovative solution, which successfully prevents some of the weaknesses in the conventional technologies. Lasers are being used in Laser Marking (Only the surface of fabric is processed, fading), Laser Engraving (Controlled cutting to depth). It has been used extensively as the replacement of some conventional dry processes like sand blasting, hand sanding, destroying, and grinding etc., which are potentially harmful and disadvantageous for the environment. The article considers some innovative laser technologies, such as marking and engraving on various textile materials. The laser applications for leather and textile processing were analysed. The report overviews systems and ways of laser marking and engraving implementations. Classification of markings was proposed. The advantages of laser marking and engraving technologies in textile fields were pointed.

    ;
    Uniform performs informative and aesthetic function, indicates the user's belonging to a certain institution or organization. This is a business card of sorts, which indirectly informs about the enterprise regardless of its working area. Purpose of the research – to develop a uniform design solution for the employees of the Rezekne Academy of Technologies, based on the study of corporate style features of uniforms, and analogue and textile material research. The research conducted shows the topicality of a uniform with corporate style elements. Analogue assessment justifies Rezekne Academy of Technology employee uniform design solution, based on RTA style book corporate style elements – logo, color palette, and uniform requirements. Analysis of the textile characteristics determines the selection of material and fitting.The research has practical meaning, because it is based on current situation research, user survey and uniform design development. Research base: 37 respondents of Rezekne Academy of Technologies; period of the research 2016–2017.

    Students Learning Research Process in Fashion Design in the Context of Sustainability: Development of New Products from Non-traditional Materials
    (2015) ;
    Jolanta Baniene
    The article analyzes one of the most pressing problems of waste-utilization. In other words looking at nearby objects, taking into account the long-term evolution of the planet. Introducing the processing facilities, promotion of unexpected and interesting design solutions, providing unnecessary items on a „second breath”. It is shown that environmental friendliness is not boring or very difficult, but interesting and promising. An introduction to students, setting up a facility to learn how to apply the principles of composition, artistic expression and harmonization measures, and learn about the design and manufacturing technology, new materials, original techniques and learn to creatively apply knowledge and professional practice. In particular, attention is drawn to high-quality and thorough completion of tasks. The aim of the study: sustainability awareness and development of the research competence of prospective designers, exploring the usage of non-traditional material within professional fashion design and design studies in the context of sustainability. The methods of research- theoretical -analysis of the literature, empirical – qualitative research methods such as the analysis of the study tasks implemented by the Rezeknes Augstskola and Utenos Collegia study programs “Clothes design and technology”, observation and analysis of students’ creative activity.

    With the development of laser technologies, the field of application of lasers is developing as well. They are capable of processing numerous materials and are still finding their application in unexpected areas. In this case, lasers are studied as a system with which black and white color artificial leather can be processed. This modern material allows you to combine comfort, practicality and reasonable price in a finished product. The manufacturer of artificial leather provides wide possibilities of design. In this study laser beam was used for dark and light laser markings on black and white color artificial leather and in this work, it could be observed how CO2 and fiber laser processing influence this specific material.
