Ivanka Trump has claimed she had a 'punk phase' in the 1990s and was a huge fan of the grunge rock band Nirvana.

In her mother's new memoir, 'Raising Trump', the First Daughter, 35, wrote that she wore flannel shirts, cried for 24 hours when Kurt Cobain died and even dyed her heir blue.

'My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts,' Ivanka wrote in a chapter of Ivana Trump's book, which was released on October 10.

'One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn't a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice' n Easy. That night she forced me to dye my hair back to blond.'

She continued: 'The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color...and I have never looked back!' 

Ivanka also said she cried for 24 hours after learning Nirvana's frontman Kurt Cobain had committed suicide in April 1994. At the time, she was 12 years old. 

'It was a shock and I was distraught,' she wrote. 

'Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much.

'After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone - major melodrama - Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.'

DailyMail.com revealed on Tuesday that Ivanka settled a lawsuit after a California company claimed she ripped off trademarked designs for her coat collection.

The details of the settlement were not disclosed.

But high end shoe designer Aquazzura, which sued Ivanka over its trademarked $785 fringe sandals in 2016, will see the First Daughter in court in March, 2018.

Unicolors Inc, a California-based 'textile converter' of imported and domestic fabrics, is sued Trump's brand - Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, Gill Leather Fashions - a manufacturer of Trump's clothing line, and TJX - the umbrella retailer that owns TJ Maxx, which sold the coat in question.

In documents obtained by DailyMail.com, Unicolors claimed it owns the rights to the 'unique two-dimensional graphic design' and that the company provided samples to clients with the understanding that if purchased, the design would be reproduced as is.
