Even though Project Runway season 15 isn’t premiering until Thursday, fans of the show can get a first look right now: EW exclusively has the full pre-season episode, “Road to the Runway,” available to view ahead of the premiere.
The hour-long special introduces the 16 new designers while taking tours of their homes and closets to show us what’s in store this year. The new contestants — ranging in age from 23 to 55 — are full of talent and innovation, according to host Heidi Klum. (The full list can be viewed here.) She even tells EW there’s a designer in the competition this season who she’d like to hire to design for her own line.
