    “Apple is very much a fashion brand” 

    ??????    What ?
    Apple is totally a fashion brand. Its designs speak for themselves as a fashion statement. Even a Mac sitting on a table is I'd say the most elegant looking computer on the market today. Every Mac looks high end now matter how expensive it is. 
    I do not share your belief.  Apple is a great electronics company and certainly a luxury brand.  But,  a fashion company is about what is offered for a person to wear.  Apple does not make luxury clothing as far as i know. 
    You forgot about an entire wearables market complete with straps made by a luxury Parisian fashion house, Hermès. But Apple as a fashion brand is much more than just wearables. Fashion is not just about clothes, it's about personal style and aesthetics. And Apple sells a lifestyle. You can think of an iPhone as an accessory which is an extension of one's personal style. An iMac on a desk says more about a person's style and taste than a generic PC does. The old iPod commercials were very much in line with ads for Nike. There's also a reason why you find Apple stores in places like New York's Fifth Avenue or Soho amongst shops like Chanel, Gucci or Lois Vuitton.

    fashion (n.)
