then your fashion design should use a proper CAD to design the board, and the EDGE should then imported inside KiCAD i.e. from a svg or a dxf file or handled directly with FreeCAD.

Yes, he should... but he won't: (he's not under my control).

I don't get your user case...
are you receiving
1) a KiCAD pcb board from your fashion designer
2) the enclosure for your board, coming from the fashion designer
3) the outline of the pcb in external format

The 1) is quite a weird case... your fashion designer should us mechanical sw to define the board outlines

The 2) case is totally on your control...
you need to use a mechanical sw to create pcb outline fitting your enclosure

The same for the 3) case, you can fix the file before importing inside kicad.
