Amsale Aspire: A Look Back on the Iconic Career and Legacy of Amsale Aberra

Clarence O’Neill “Neil” Brown III ’74, Rachel Amsale Brown ’10, and designer Amsale Aberra pose together. By Courtesy of Neil Brown. Over 30 years ago, a young man tried to approach a young woman he’d met at a party at Back Bay Station. The woman though, was unimpressed — the two had already met countless times as she served him in the Science Center café on his study breaks from Harvard Law and Business School. That man was Clarence O’Neill “Neil” Brown III ’74 and the woman, Amsale Aberra. She would become not only his wife, but also a famous fashion designer credited with the creation of the “modern wedding dress.”
