Yes, wikidata french label and description are wrong.I have send a email 
to the french-speaking mailing
Let us have a few days to find a translation that all agree.
it 'll be like :
shop=boutique : magasin de Haute couture
shop=fashion : magasin de vêtements et accessoires de mode

feel free to also fix label & description in other languages
with native speakers in these languages.

But this doesn't answer the first question : what is a fashion shop ?
What store would like to say : we sell clothes that aren't "fashion"?
nearly none. maybe it could be moved to a subtag, making data more 
usable for example query shop=clothes with "mid-range man wedding"
