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.

Check out the full “Road to the Runway” episode above or tune in to Lifetime at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 15. The season 15 premiere of Project Runway, when Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie will be guest judging, will follow at 9 p.m. ET.
