Sarah Burton is walking away from Alexander McQueen with a bang — because her final collection for the famous fashion house was one for the ages … and a catwalk to remember.

The longtime AMQ Creative Director — who succeeded McQueen himself following his death in 2010, serving as a trailblazer — trotted out her unique style for the Spring/Summer 2024 line Saturday during Paris Fashion Week … which will be her last as head of the brand.

Her models certainly didn’t disappoint … carrying themselves with elegance and grace as they walked up and down the runway, proudly rocking SB’s swan song designs.

A familiar face was also in the mix … Naomi Campbell — who’s worked with McQueen a lot over the years — did her famous strut in a Burton-made gown … and she even appears to have shed a tear to close out the show, just proving this is truly the end of an era.

Burton announced her departure from Alexander McQueen earlier this month — although no official reason was given by parent company Kering … and no successor has been named.

At the time, SB simply said … ““I am so proud of everything I’ve done and of my incredible team at Alexander McQueen. I am looking forward to the future and my next chapter and will always carry this treasured time with me.” No word on where she’s going next.

Like we said … Burton’s exit caps off a trailblazing career full of highlights — one of which included Sarah designing Kate Middleton‘s gorgeous wedding dress in 2011 … something the entire world got to witness during her marriage to Prince William.

She’s won a ton of awards, and her fashion sensibilities have been lauded for a long time.

You can tell just how respected she is by her contemporaries … because Vogue’s very own EIC Anna Wintour was also on hand Saturday to send Sarah off right — giving her a big hug.

Sarah’s fits have been worn by celebs far and wide … and now, a new chapter begins.
