The Apple Apparel Group was led by Chairman Schiller until the year 680, with his daughter Kimi also working there. The group regularly held design auctions, where a gem trader would regularly attend and bid high amounts to obtain their designs.
Year 678 Edit
During this year, the Apple Apparel Group began to have financial trouble, causing Schiller to cancel products. Some people speculated during this time that Schiller had lost his talent, and questioned the sixteen-year-old Kimi's ability as well. Kimi overheard the rumors and offered to design for her father, recognizing that he was stressed, but he refused.
Year 680 Edit
The group changed hands when Apple Federal joined forces with the League Till to go to war against Cloud. After being absent from meetings of the Board of Directors for a week, Chairman Schiller was sent to Losol and Joe was forced to go into hiding, but Kimi was rescued by Orlando, who took her to the outskirts of Lor River City.
Nikki met up with her in order to discuss their options, and they decided to go back to Welton to investigate and try and reclaim the Apple Apparel Group. Upon arriving in Welton, they learned of the White Blossom Banquet, where Chairman Schiller's design, a dress called the White Blossom, would be appearing. With Kimi attending in disguise, they attended the banquet.
At the banquet, the auction did not go well as the gem trader was not there. Kimi convinced Nikki to bid highly on a cheongsam in order to stir up interest, and Bai Yongxi purchased it for 1 million for his cousin Bai Jinjin. The White Blossom was also stolen during the banquet by Hiber at the direction of Reid, the organizer, but was returned later to Kimi.
The Apple Apparel Group's building became the site of a skirmish later that very night. Kimi brought the White Blossom back to the building in an attempt to draw out Reid, and while she was there she discovered that there was no sign of her father's alleged kidnapping. Orlando helped her look at the security tapes, and she saw that Charles had sent her father there. Reid and Charles both arrived to the building shortly after, and while they talked about the fate of White Blossom, an assassin called Shade, acting under the direction of Reid, nearly killed Kimi. Charles attempted to get away and save White Blossom, but Shade fatally shot him and made off with the dress.
Kimi later became the president of the group, and visited North Kingdom on behalf of Apple. At around the same time, a young designer named Abbey who worked for the group reflected on her achievements. Abbey had always wanted to work for Apple Federation Apparel Group since she was a girl, but she felt that her designs once joining the group were ordinary. While asleep on a subway, Abbey came up with the idea for the dress Song of the Whale, and later designed the dress, which became popular years later.

- There also exist a Lilith Apparel Group, a Cloud Apparel Group, and a Pigeon Apparel Group in Miraland which also produce clothing.
