Fighting, tears, beautiful fashion, and more fighting — Project Runway is back. EW has your exclusive first look at season 15 of the Lifetime show.

Based on the supertease above, this year seems to be shaping up to be the “most dramatic season yet,” to steal a line from The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison. There’s puking, a swimsuit challenge, a pop-up shop, and even a literal roller coaster. But unlike that other reality show, there’s no time for tears here. One contestant is heard saying, “If you are going to cry, go outside.”

Even though it seems like there is a lot of bickering between the designers, judge Zac Posen tells EW the season didn’t start that way. “There was incredible camaraderie,” he says. “Only until the season starts to build do the claws and needles and scissors come out.”

Be sure to watch the full tease above, and check out the season 15 premiere when it airs Sept. 15 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
