'I've never had a job - other than at AP - that has formed me as a person or influenced my whole life,' she said. 
'When I walk past the shop in Soho I feel really nostalgic about a time when I think I was quite carefree. I look back at it and just I think of youth.'
Peroxide blonde Paloma, who insists she 'still wears Agent Provocateur underwear to this day', was shot in the brand's iconic staff uniform - a baby pink, button-up dress - by former colleague, photographer Alice Hawkins.

Esteemed snapper Alice - whose work is known for its off-kilter glamour - was inspired by her personal collection of cheeky Polaroids, which were taken during her days as a shop girl. 
Paloma can be seen playing the ultimate Agent Provocateur store manager in the playful images. She wreaks havoc in the fantasy store, playing dress-up in the back rooms and cleaning windows in her garters.
During the three years that Paloma worked in the shop, she regularly served Fran Cutler, who works in PR and is close friends with model Kate Moss.
'After a few years of serving her, she asked me what I did outside of the store and I told her that I wrote songs and performed them in clubs and pubs,' she told The Daily Telegraph

'She arranged that I meet with the head of Virgin Records who then introduced me to my manager. His first reaction was, "Your songs are terrible but you are such a brilliant character!" So I stuck in there and tried to learn.'

The company was acquired by a private equity firm For £60m in 2007 and now has a total of 104 stores worldwide.
