In this work, a new, modern graphical user interface (GUI) for 2015 version of the Wilson -- Devinney (WD) code is developed. PyWD2015 is written in $Python\,2.7$ and uses $Qt4$ interface framework. At its core, the GUI generates lcin and dcin files from user inputs and sends them to WD, then reads and visualises the outputs in a user friendly way. It also includes some useful tools for the user, which makes technical aspects of modelling process significantly easier. While multiple sky surveys and space missions generate, reduce and categorize large amounts of observational data, it's up to the dedicated studies to analyse peculiar or anomalous systems and make further progress in the field of physics of eclipsing binaries. We believe PyWD2015 will be a great ``dedicated study" suite for such systems.
